Curated by Rodrigo Carazas Portal

CONTRABAND is an exhibition that confronts cultural imperialism by reflecting on the impact that «developed» countries have on the rest of the world through media and commerce. The five participating artists, all of whom were born outside of privileged Western geographies, make art using the language of bootlegs, contraband, and other illegal phenomena. Their works—regurgitated reactions to forced assimilation, and subversions of systems that seek to control—challenge systems of power that absorb and reproduce others in their own image.

Participating Artists:
Rodrigo Carazas Portal
Jimena Chávez Delion
chukwumaa
Aaron López C.
Emilio Vargas Vera
